Heartbreak was the impetus to me writing poems and music in the first place.

Crazy! I was so hurt that I had to write.Jill Scott

Freedom of religion is a principle that is central to our Nation's Declaration of Independence. Congress has taken this positive step to protect our freedom to express allegiance to America's flag and the ideals it represents.Ron Lewis
